Is isoniazid, pyrazinamide, and rifampin safe in pregnancy?

Some risk: Isoniazid/pyrazinamide/rifampin are usually used in combination to treat tuberculosis.

Can you overdose on pyrazinamide?

Can you overdose on pyrazinamide?

Too much medicine: Yes, it's possible to take too much of any 'drug', including PZA or pyrazinamide. Hopefully not 'too much' was taken — but if it was, you need to get to an ER right away and let them know. They can contact Poison Control, and the right monitoring and protocols can be put in place to help you. I would worry a little about your liver, until I knew more about your case. Hope you can get help ASAP ...Read more

Can TB be treat with rifampin (RIF), pyrazinamide (PZA), and ethambutol (EMB) only??? Just stop INH due the high enzymes waiting for the next treat

Can TB be treat with rifampin (RIF), pyrazinamide (PZA), and ethambutol (EMB) only??? Just stop INH due the high enzymes waiting for the next treat

Yes: Santa Clara TB control is very good and will advise you and your doctor of any further changes based on nature of the TB infection (lung vs other sites), duration of treatment so far, susceptibility of the TB isolates, and other factors. However, if lab abnormality is with liver enzymes, usually rifampin is held as well. ...Read more

Suffering frm neck TB lymphadenitis. Is rifampin 600mg, INH 300 mg, ethambutol 1100 mg & pyrazinamide 1600mg correct dosage for a 77 kg weight.

Suffering frm neck TB lymphadenitis. Is rifampin 600mg, INH 300 mg, ethambutol 1100 mg & pyrazinamide 1600mg correct dosage for a 77 kg weight.

TB treatment: You are being treated with 4 medications which is good — since it doesn't allow the TB bacteria any good chance of 'escaping' from the treatment. Hopefully only 1 drug is really needed- but I expect you may find that out in the future. Your ethambutol dose and pyrazinamide doses could be a little higher, but I am not worried. INH & Rif are the main drugs for treating this & they r dosed well. ...Read more

I am starting to take Pyrazinamide, Rifampin and Ethambutol but also i have RA and i start to fell pain in my joints again is safe to take HYDROcodone?

I am starting to take Pyrazinamide, Rifampin and Ethambutol but also i have RA and i start to fell pain in my joints again is safe to take HYDROcodone?

It's not unsafe: But may or may not be the best answer. There are multiple medications, both new and old, to treat rheumatoid arthritis, and reduce the painful joints by actually reducing the arthritis itself. Hydrocodone or any other opioid will reduce pain somewhat, but carry risks of escalating doses, dependency and even eventually INCREASING the pain itself. It should be used short-term. See a rheumatologist ...Read more

Who gets omg?

Who gets omg?

Can you clarify?: Omg is a texting-age expression "oh my god" but used even by secularists to express amazement and dismay at once. It's no medical acronym that I recognize though there are some trashy websites preseting medical freaks as having "omg disease". To which disease are you referring? Someone on healthtap will be happy to answer. ...Read more
